Would you wear one of these t-shirts?

“Can’t meet men. Maybe it’s your outfit . . . ” So begins a story in Women’s Wear Daily about a new t-shirt conversation that aims to spark conversation between single men and women with slogans like “Boy Scouting” and “Just Ask Me.” Would you wear one of these Single Tease t-shirts? Why or why not? Which of the slogans would you be most or least likely to wear?

The idea behind these shirts intrigues me. I hate the way that we’re all so encased in our own private bubbles when we see an attractive stranger in line at a cafe or on the bus. On the other hand I would be mortified to wear most of them. I’d feel too available, too open to anyone. “Hello” is OK–it’s a bit more neutral and friendly and not too demeaning to the shirt-wearer. pickuplines_t.jpgprod_boyscout.jpg

    Hi Sasha! very cute blog! And thanks for the write-up! I’m one of the founders of SingleTease, and we created this company because we found that singles just weren’t talking!
    Its actually quite fun to where a shirt and men really appreciate the help in letting them know your available!

    I have to agree that although it’s a cute idea, I probably wouldn’t wear these tees.

    One of the reasons I’m a quirkyalone is because I’m very selective about who I date. I guess you could say I have a very narrow range of attraction, and I’m just not interested in someone as a romantic partner if I’m not attracted. If I go out to a bar with friends, nine and a half times out of ten, I’ll be approached by a well-meaning guy I have no interest in. Then I feel pressured to sit there and make nice when I’d rather be enjoying the company of my friends, only to be faced with the dilemma of how to wiggle my way out of a request for my number. I can only imagine how this pattern would be multiplied if I were walking around advertising myself 24/7.

    But that’s just me. Non-quirkyalone singles may find these shirts much more suited to their needs.

What’s a quirkyalone?

A quirkyalone is a person who enjoys being single (or spending time alone) and so prefers to wait for the right person to come along rather than dating indiscriminately. Quirkyalones prefer to be single rather than settle.
Quirkyalones can also be married or in a committed relationship (quirkytogether). You can be a man or a woman, any age.
Quirkyalone is ultimately a philosophy about finding happiness within yourself whether you’re single or in a relationship.
